There are many questions to ask as I am making a sculpture. Often they are about relevance, the concerns of contemporary existence. How does it feel to be alive today? I am following the useful tradition of looking at nature for insight. When I follow what catches my attention as I examine a question, I am attracted to what holds answers and insights. What I’m attracted to, I put into the work. This is what is key, I believe, to make the work a document of discovery and an invitation to the viewer to participate.
